Water Color Tulips From the Fun Fridays Art Class

Our Fun Fridays Art Class meets Fridays from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. Students ages 12 & up learn something new each week - a new medium or art material, techniques, about an artist/art history and more. This is our first water color class - we painted  a large tulip composition and explored the textures you can achieve with cling wrap. See the photo with a painting in progress with the plastic wrap on the wet wash in the background.
( see the close-up photos of the background area of the painting)
 They look great and we had so much fun!
